Local History Project It was great to see so many pupils, their families and the SUN out for the launch of The Annual St Kieran Well Festival and the unveiling of the beautifully restored ironwork. Well done to 6th Class on their historical research and project regarding local industries in the Carnaross area (in particular- forges, farms and big houses) The project is now on display in the school and will be displayed again during St Kieran's Well Festival - August Bank Holiday Weekend
6th Class Historical field trip ......(aka-  a spin to Castle Kieran graveyard / monastic site) What do you do when the books are safely packed away and your primary education is drawing to a close ? You 'hop on yer bike' and head  off to Kieran Well! Between bathing the feet, serious sketching, a touch of meditation, a sprinkling of history   .... and the beloved rolling down the hill - a great time was had by all! 
Today was daffodil day and the flowers looked beautiful in the spring sunshine! These are the beautiful daffodils planted by the children from Carnaross National School in conjunction with Pride of Place. As part of the Youth Daffodil Challenge, it was planned to sell them this weekend in aid of the Irish Cancer Society. The daffodil bulbs will double and come back better than ever next year and hopefully so will our community after COVID 19 and this time next year we will have an abundance of daffodils to sell for this deserving cause.

24/03/’20 Dear parents, Firstly, I hope I find you, your family and all your loved ones well. The health and well-being of everyone is the priority at this difficult time. This afternoon it was announced that schools will remain closed until the 20th of April. As a result of this extended closure, class teachers will assign daily work for their pupils and this will be available through a new link on the school website, www.carnarossns.ie, called Carnaross Learning Zone from Sunday March 29th. There is of course no substitute for face to face teaching and the dynamic that exists within a classroom but hopefully this assigned work will help keep the children somewhat in school mode. During these difficult times, we understand that your child may not be in a position to complete this assigned work, due to family work commitments, child minding etc. so please be assured that there is no expectation or pressure to do so.  If your child wishes to engage in further activities, please feel free to use the useful links or work from the Home Learning Plan of suggested activities, both of which are posted on this page. Please do as much or as little as you feel appropriate.  There is no need to continue onto any new material which we haven’t yet covered in school. There are also many things that you could do with your child that will both be fun and beneficial for their overall mental well-being- Read books together (Ideal opportunity to improve the children’s reading fluency and overall comprehension), play a board game, make a jigsaw, play cards, get crafty, build with Lego, bake, do the 100 touch challenge(G.A.A.) play outside. Finally, I would like to inform you that RTE in conjunction with Department of Education and Science will broadcast a daily programme to assist pupils in 1st - 6th classes. The programme will be presented from real classrooms by teachers with experience in TV presentations. The first programme will air on Monday 30th March at 11am until 12am with a repeat later in the day. Thank you again for your continued support and take care. Yours Sincerely Dervilla Finnegan. Principal
